What do you do when a friend loses a child? Not just any child, but a 3 week old child. I just found out that my friend and his wife lost their son today.
They don’t have a phone, I don’t know where they live, and I have no way of getting in touch with them. My heart is breaking right now. I’m doing everything I can to find some way of figuring out where they are. I can’t offer much. But, I can be a shoulder to cry on.
Last week she knocked on my door asking to borrow formula. She had missed her WIC appointment and needed just a scoop to get her by. I had a whole can that Lexi couldn’t use, so I gave it to her. That was just last week…and now her arms are empty. She has no baby to feed.
I’ve experienced miscarriage, 3 times. That’s the worst pain I’ve ever been through. And I know it’s nothing compared to what these parents are going through.
Tonight I held Lexi a little tighter, kissed her cheek a few more times, and said an extra I love you as I tucked her into bed. These parents won’t have that opportunity tonight. I don’t think my life would go on without Lexi. And I don’t know how these parents will get up every day and go on with their lives. Right now all I know is that they need love and support.
Please pray!! Right now it’s all they have!
